BHS customers forced to spend DOUBLE to use their existing gift cards

BHS customers are furious about the administrator’s new gift card rule.

You now have to spend twice as much as your gift card’s value in order to use it. If you’re wanting to use a £20 gift card, you must spend £40.

MORE: BHS went into administration on Monday, 25 April.

However, customers should be thanking them for honouring gift cards, as “under insolvency law, when a retailer goes into administration, they don’t have to honour gift cards or vouchers,” MoneySavingExpert said.

“Despite this, BHS has agreed to continuing accepting gift cards and vouchers.

“But there’s a big catch – BHS now says if you want to redeem a voucher you need to spend twice as much as the face value of the voucher.

“For example, if the voucher is worth £20, you’ll need to spend £40 to use it and the remainder must be settled by cash, debit or credit card.”
